About the Process: When an audience sits down for a dance movie, they expect to follow a few wannabe stars on their path to a major competition.  But in swing dancing, the competitions are plentiful and meaningless.  The true story is about what the dance does for the soul. How do you immediately dispel your audience's expectations and how do you structure the film?
